Horoscopes for 5.14.2020

These are kind creatures. God what lies I have heard! Our couriers say all's savage but at court.

  • Imogen in Shakespeare’s Cymbeline IV.ii.32-3

Horoscopes for 5.14.2020

Taurus

Taurus

“The beat goes on,” and adjust that term as need be for your individual Taurus tastes. But the beat does go on. Other day, I was helping in a situation, too hard to explain but I was keeping company with brilliant 5-year old. He was tutoring me about plants. I inquired, later, and he had been in outdoor preschool of some sort. He knew plants and he knew which plants were edible, and he knew how to get sweet pollen and nectar from certain flowers. Bonus: he knew the difference between what was edible and what was potentially poisonous. As the Taurus birthdays unfurl, think about me following around a kid, and in his tiny kid voice, explaining what was edible, what was the best tasting flowers, and what I should avoid. It was an engaging 45 minutes, for me. What I realized, and what I thought about in respect to Taurus and birthdays? Always be willing to learn from the most unlikely of places. Never know who the teacher will be.

Gemini

It was a red string tattoo, one around her left pinky, and one around his right thumb. While I am certainly not a palmist of any sort, I’ve been around enough of the palm readers to know a line or two. Besides, the symbolism? Is that not clear? Her pinky. His thumb. Relationships and the way couples interact? Big issue. Also, doing that as a tattoo? That would, in my mind, cede one’s destiny over to another, for all eternity — or the lifespan of the ink. My guess?

Horoscopes for 5.7.2020

    “What can be their business
    With me, a poor weak woman, fall’n from favor?
    I do not like their coming. Now I think on’t,
    They should be good men, their affairs as righteous.
    But all hoods make not monks.”

Queen Katherine
in Shakespeare’s Henry 8 3.1.21-4

The term also shows up in different form, in Latin, in Shakespeare's 12th Night — “Culcullus non facit monachum.”

Horoscopes for 5.7.2020

Full Moon 17 Taurus/Scorpio on 7 May 2020 at 5:45 AM.

Venus starts a retrograde pattern on May 13, 2020 at 1:45 AM (local), so some charts will show May 12. All depends. Goes direct on June 25.

Mercury goes retrograde on June 17, while Mars has just entered Pisces.

Taurus

Mix water and earth? Mud. Mud can be fired up in a kiln, or just with heat, think: fire? That creates a hardened surface, or in more advanced forms? Ceramics. The two principle elements currently present are basically water (Mars/Neptune in Pisces) and Earth (Uranus/Sun/Mercury in Taurus) with Jupiter and Pluto lagging in Capricorn.

No, there’s other stuff, but for now, think about the incipient forms of ceramics, as that’s the goal for the end of this cycle, and we’re just at the point where we’re starting out, but we haven’t gotten far, and maybe, we need to smash the stuff apart so we can — eventually — rebuild it. Better. Stronger. More durable. More useful. More artful. But for now? We’re just mixing up water and earth to make mud.

Gemini

Just a bullet list for Gemini? Think that would work. Just a bullet list of what to do. Or what not to do? 1.

Horoscopes for 4.30.2020

    “How many fond fools serve mad jealousy?”

Lucinana in Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors 2.1.111

Horoscopes for 4.30.2020

Taurus

Taurus
I tend to see that as seriously exciting material, but then, I’m not a Taurus, and I don’t have that Taurus sentiment. However, as a patient, outside observer — fanboy, if you will — of “all things Taurus?” This is good stuff, but there’s a degree of action required. As birthday a Taurus person? There’s a degree of vacation urged. Balance action against caution? We wind up frozen in place, the ubiquitous “Paralysis by analysis.” See, this is where I earn my keep, as all I’m suggesting is gentle form action. Could be a text, email (for me), phone call, or, in a simpler example, I will stop for coffee and say hello to some buddies. Not a big deal, in and of itself, but then there’s always one, “Hey, you’re that astrology guy, right? What does the ‘Uranus in Taurus’ thing mean?” Means, as a Taurus, even the simplest of actions will be rewarded. But it does require some action.

Gemini

Sagittarius is the polar opposite from Gemini. So I kept thinking of a Mark Twain quote, from his Puddn’head Wilson calendar, from the story of the same name, all of which is collected and collated in my Pink Cake book, but I kept thinking about a single quote. It holds the answer about how Gemini might be best served when facing this week’s energy.

Horoscopes for 4.23.2020

“Good Signior Angelo, you must excuse us all,
My wife is shrewish when I keep not hours:
Say that I linger’d with you at your shop
To see the making of her carcanet,
And that tomorrow you will bring it home.”

in Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors 3.1.1-5

Horoscopes for 4.23.2020

Sun conjunct Moon (New Moon) loosely conjunct Uranus 9:45 PM, 4/22/2020. Saturn squares that mess, too.

Taurus

Taurus
Love me my little Taurus friends, and sure wish them a happy birthday season, and now? There’s a right way to do this, and there’s a “wrong way” wherein, “wrong” has the incorrect connotation, but there’s a less than wonderful, too dramatic route. I know, birthdays, new moon and all, but maybe, just maybe, this isn’t the time to rush straight into that situation. To me, this looks like a boss of one form or another, and it looks like the boss is making undue requests of your Taurus self. Way to win? Acquiesce. Consider, I know birthdays and all, but consider what I call a tactical retreat. Just falling back to regroup and rethink a tactical situation. Could be simple office politics, could be an overbearing friend. Give in a little to win. At least, for now, pretend they’re right. Makes for a lot more fun birthday time. Right? Stay home?

Gemini

Hard to believe and difficult to grasp, but there is a certain amount of sex appeal that every Gemini has, and it shines this next couple of days. It was an old joke amongst friend about the way certain places in Texas, certain people, would wear that — whatever it is — and work it correctly. As the Gemini, you’ve got, now use it. This can be employed in a number of different situations, and the problem being “sex appeal” doesn’t equate to “sex.” But there is something inherently appealing these days. Use it. Use it wisely.

Horoscopes for 4.16.2020

  • “And kiss me Kate, we will be married a’ Sunday.”
    • The Taming of the Shrew (2.1.315)

    Horoscopes for 4.16.2020

    New Moon in Taurus loosely conjunct Uranus April 22, 2020.

    Taurus

    Taurus
    Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew is possibly one of the most vile, sexist pieces ever written. Even funnier considering there’s substantial evidence to suggest the real Shakespeare author was a woman. I was listening to some Shakespeare material and the presenter suggested that Kate is quite disingenuous, possibly sarcastic, as she is merely tolerating the suitor to get her way. “She wins by humoring this idiot who marries her,” was the suggestion. I looked at my date, as I was discussing finer points of the scholarship, authorship notwithstanding, “You think some strong woman would just put up with an idiot boyfriend so she could get what she wants from him?” “Why Kramer, whatever do you mean? You’re always so much smarter than me.” Even I have to roll my eyes at that retort. I wonder, has this one just been putting up with me because she thinks I’m occasionally cute? Or useful? “Oh no, honey, I would never treat you like that.” Happy Taurus birthday, and enjoy the humor, where you find it, but with the planets where they are? That pressure on Uranus? Are we being humored?

    “An intelligent person wouldn’t have to ask that question, Kramer...”

    Gemini

    Venus and Mars are making nice, but we talked about that, right? The two major hurtles, for Gemini? Looks like that pesky Taurus Sun and the phase of the moon, more than anything else. None of this really bad, just uncomfortable, for Gemini, and that Mars/Venus thing should be smoothing over the rough spots.
